    Does anyone know if the Clear Coat has a cutout for the flash?
    I would assume if it is covered it is going to lessen the effect flash has on pictures taken and I am pretty impressed with the flash on the iPhone4! Works really well!!!!
    I experienced something crazy and it has to do with exactly what you're talking about. I haven't removed the plastic backing that came on the phone because I'm waiting to get an Invisible Shield or something like it. Well I started taking pictures and when the flash comes on the light travels sideways through the plastic and into the lens so I just had a bright white picture with very minor details on the far right edge. I was like, "Man, this flash is seriously f'd up!" then I looked at it and realized I was a complete moron.

    LMAO!!!!

    That's awesome!!! Yeah that is my biggest concern that there''s a cutout for it. The flash works really well!!!

    ZAGG has had to much of an orange peel effect on 3GS so I'm staying away from that brand.

    LOL, yeah I felt like a real loser. I had a ZAGG on my old (but still ticking) 60GB iPod Video (5G) and could put up with the orange peel look but not on this phone. The flash IS great on the iPhone. I actually had to use it yesterday as a flashlight because we had a power outage at work and we had to take the stairs out.

    I am holding off buying an iPhone 4 until I get an Otterbox Defender case for it. As soon as I get the e-mail from Otterbox saying I can order it I will. It is a company phone and I do maintenance at a lumber yard. I use my iPhone instead of going to my office so it has to be protected at all times.

    I did a zagg shield on the front and a ifrogz case that covers the corners sold at bestbuy. Looks good for now. Probably get a holster when I find a good one.

    I'm getting a Speck CandyShell in black for my new iPhone 4. Have one on my now ex-iPhone 3G and it's hands down the best case i've ever used. Been waiting for the iPhone 4 version and it came out a couple days ago.

    I just called two ATT stores and no cases to be found.

    Store 1: 89 phones yesterday, 8 cases
    Store 2: 120 phones yesterday, 16 cases.

    If you find one, buy it, then return in a week or two if you don't like it.

    Could use some help here. So I bought one of the ifrogz cases from best buy and my problem is that the screen protector I also bought doesn't fit with the case. Anyone using one of these cases have a recommendation on screen protectors or should I just take the case back?

    I'm hoping it fits in my current Golla bags (I have, um, 4-I really like them, lol) That way, I can use it case free and use the bag for protection in my bag. I love the look of the stainless steel band and don't want to cover it up.
    I love my Golla bags! I have 3 currently and use them all the time. The fit is a little tighter with the iPhone 4 because it's a tad taller, but still works. And I'm kind of paranoid with my iphone and keep it not only in a Golla bag but also in a thin silicone case (hence the reason the golla bag is sometimes a tight fit).

    My only beef with the Golla bags is that they generally will not close if you have earphones plugged in (and when I listen to my iPhone on the Metro, I like my iPhone to be concealed to protect it from both damage and theft). Anyway, to solve this problem, I cut a little narrow u-shaped area from the top flap and sewed it closed. Not pretty, but very functional! (see picture)

    I had this issue too. The silicone rubberized cases generally work better with screen protectors. I hate the iFrogz cases - they are too stiff and too hard to get on. Also, they are so "deep" that I have a hard time plugging in headphones or the aux jack in my car when my iPhone is in one of those iFrogz cases.

    I couldn't get the Zagg to stay on with one of the iFrogz cases....it was just too snug unfortunately.

    I know there are purists that don't wish to cover their phone with anything Bulky but for this kind of hardware at this kind of cash...protection is key. I will be getting the Otter Box Defender when it ships. I have a Zagg screen for scratching purposes and a temp $15 case for now but nothing gives the security of the Otter.

    I had one on my 3G and never worried once if I dropped it. It's TOUGH! If you prefer protection over fashion, that's the best investment you will make for this phone...especially if you work your phone hard, have kids, hardwood floors or work a lot outside.

    I made it to the local mall where clear-coat has a kiosk and they charge $29.99 for full wrap and $10 for install but line was too long to wait to have one installed. Going back tomorrow! It looks really good!!! And best part is if they screw up while installing it they take it off and do it again with a new one until its right!
